      I tried this recipe and then found out that wild rice takes about 20 minutes (or more) to be thoroughly cooked so mixing all the ingredients together won't cook up properly. I'm still going to try to make this work, though. My husband LOVES the Uncle Ben's stuff so if I can make it at home for less, by golly I will

      The way to do this would be to cook up a batch of wild rice like you normally do, and then
      dehydrate the cooked wild rice. This way it's like instant wild rice.
